My oh my, this here recipe…so delicious! Who doesn’t love the taste of sweet, buttery crusted peach cobbler? Truly, if you’re not a fan of peach cobbler, we can’t be friends! I kid…. One day I woke up craving peach cobbler, but I mean, who bakes peach cobbler for breakfast? So I began thinking, in what way could I incorporate all of that sweet, fruity, buttery goodness of peach cobbler into a breakfast dish? Then it came to me, OATMEAL! Oatmeal is one of those versatile dishes that you can make to your liking.
I had everything I needed. A ripe peach, old fashioned Quaker Oats, almond milk, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, butter and vanilla! It was time to get to work! By the way, this recipe is Vegan! Who am I???
What you’ll need:
1 Cup Of Old Fashioned Oats
1 Cup of Almond/Coconut Milk or whatever milk you like
1 Large Ripe Peach (Peeled and sliced)
2 tbs sugar (I used Splenda)
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp salt
2 tsp butter
(Not pictured, Earth Balance brand vegan butter…tastes just like the real thing!)
Let’s get cooking!
Get a small nonstick skillet. Add 1 tsp of butter, sliced peaches, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and cook on medium low heat for about 5 minutes or until desired doneness. I like my peaches tender, but not mushy. I have to warn you, the smell is intoxicating!
Get your favorite microwaveable bowl. Put in your oats, add your milk and salt…yes salt. Real quick, folks who don’t salt their oatmeal or grits should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law! I’m being dramatic, but who wants flavorless oatmeal? Okay I’m back. Cook the oatmeal in the microwave for 2-3 minutes. You can add or takeaway time based on how thick or thin you like your oatmeal. I like mine on the thicker side. If it comes out too thick, add a little more milk, stir and viola! Too thin? Cook longer. I’d also advise to use a bigger bowl giving it room while it cooks in the microwave to prevent spills.
Once the oatmeal is done, add the other tsp of butter and stir to incorporate. Remember I said it was Vegan, not healthy. Then pour your peach mixture on top. Stir and enjoy! You can add more sugar if you like, but I ate as is and it was delicious! This makes 1 large single portion.
Before I end this blog, let’s settle a debate. Peach cobbler – more fruit, or more dough/crust? I’m definitely more dough and less fruit! I am not a fan of soupy peach cobbler. I want to eat it, not drink it! Chime in and let me know your preference in the comments!
If you make this, let me know! It’s definitely one I’m going to keep in my rotation!
